Using low parasitic microsolder bumping, we hybrid integrated efficient photonic devices from different platforms with advanced 40 nm CMOS VLSI circuits to build ultra-low power silicon photonic transmitters and receivers for potential applications in high performance inter/intra-chip interconnects. We used a depletion racetrack ring modulator with improved(More)
—Digital " assist " circuits can improve the efficiency of traditionally analog circuit blocks, especially as technologies scale to the detriment of analog blocks. We apply some of these techniques to a 10 Gbps optical reciever, and demonstrate 395 fJ/b energy efficiency. Digital calibration blocks wrapped around a simple analog core enabled offset(More)
Switched-capacitor voltage regulators (SCVRs) are widely used in on-chip power management, due to high step-down efficiency and feasibility of integration. In this work, we present theoretical analysis and optimization methodology for flying and decoupling capacitance values for area-constrained on-chip SCVRs to achieve the highest system-level power(More)
